Ken Wins - good news
I will be interested to read the judgement whereby the suspension of Ken Livingstone for a comment he made when slightly tired and emotional
by the Standards Board/Adjudication Panel is quashed.
The APE and Standards Board have censored councillors for really silly reasons (such as baking a cake). I take the view that actually the courts should be used to enforce local government standards and all the silly cases should be thrown in the bin.
It is up to the voters to decide who represents them. Only when there are serious abuses should the courts get involved.
